Twitter tests ‘Search Subscribe’

Twitter is reportedly working on a feature called ‘Search Subscribe’, which will let users receive push notifications for new tweets matching a search query they choose.

The feature was spotted by developer Dylan Roussel. Screenshots shared by Roussel shows Twitter’s bell notification icon on the search bar in its mobile app.

According to Roussel, you can enter a search query and sign up for push notifications when relevant tweets are made. Roussel hasn’t yet received a notification for any of the search queries he is subscribed to.

This could be because the feature is still a work in progress and not yet functional. Currently, it has only been spotted in the latest version of Twitter Alpha. Similar functionality is available on Twitter’s own TweetDeck web client for a particular search term.
